HKTV treats its Talent as "internal VIPs". The Talent Management Department is set up as a strong communication channel for all Talent to express their needs in furthering their career. The department deliberately takes care of all reasonable requests and implements them whenever feasible. It strives every effort in areas of talent requisition, compensation and engagement, retention and formulation of internal talent policies and procedures for different departments in the company.

Together with external professional consultants, we work out different training programs so as to enable the Talent and the Group to grow together for a win-win achievement.

1. Happy Working Environment and Location

Tseung Kwan O New Headquarters

In August 2017, we relocated our headquarters to our newly built premises in Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate, covering more than 200,000 square feet floor area and being named as HKTV Multimedia and Ecommerce Center (the "Centre"). The center consists of two main buildings, including office area, e-fulfillment facilities, studios, and post-production facilities. On January 11, 2018, in support of government initiatives to boost Hong Kong's innovation and technology development, HKTV officially launched "THE BASE – Ecommerce Incubation Programme". Spanning 20,000 square feet, THE BASE comprises four filming studios, two professional dubbing studios, Hollywood movie grade cameras and production equipment worth over tens of millions Hong Kong dollar, co-working spaces and post-production workshops. Providing free access for the young generation, it aims to connect people from different social classes, qualifications, generations and industries to engender cross-cultural learning and conceive a new way of retailing for Hong Kong.

Meanwhile, the Group is now converting a space of approximately 55,000 square feet into an E-commerce Fulfillment Centre with installation of its second set of automatic warehousing and picking system at a larger scale, valued about HKD140 million from Germany to enhance the Group’s operational efficiency of the entire e-commerce distribution process and to accelerate the integration of e-commerce distribution with the Centre’s multimedia capabilities. The robotic system comprises a conveying system, an automatic picking system, an automatic storage and retrieval system, as well as tote handling systems including the software for material flow control and automatic management.

Besides, each office floor of the Centre has spacious resting and collaboration area for Talents to temporarily escape from their hectic schedules, get meditation and regain energy. There is a large scale of staff canteen at the ground floor, staffed with several chefs in different specialization to provide elaborately high nutritional Chinese and Western dishes. Home-made meal boxes are provided at nighttime for free to Talent working overnight or overtime. Meanwhile, shuttle bus service and parking spaces are available for Talent to commute.

Tsing Yi and Kwai Chung Logistics Centres

The Group has enormous logistics centres in Mapletree Logistics Hub Tsing Yi and self-owned property at Trans Asia Centre in Kwai Chung, covering a total area of 170,000 square feet. Our first large-scale automatic picking and conveying system introduced from Germany has been put into operation in March 2018 at Tsing Yi logistics centre with an aim to optimize the output of the whole logistics, fulfilment and warehousing functions. Whereas, in the Kwai Chung logistics centre, there are refrigerated warehouse facilities with three different temperatures, together with the Group's cold truck fleet to form a powerful cold logistics chain for the e-commerce development.
